The site is 885 square metres (1,058 sq yd) and includes a 250 square metres (299 sq yd) swimming pool.
It closed to the public in 1990 and was subsequently subject to several redevelopment plans. In 2005 it was acquired by the Bristol Glass Boat Company, who restored the pool with the addition of substantial spa facilities with saunas and other treatment rooms and built a restaurant and café. It reopened in November 2008 as The Lido, Bristol.
The Victoria public house occupies a corner of the site, carved out soon after the lido was under construction to provide funds for its completion. The pub remained open (although not continuously) during the lido's closure. Originally a George's Bristol Brewery tied house, it passed to Ushers of Trowbridge in the 1960s and then through several hands. Since early 2006 the pub has been refurbished and operated by Dawkins Ales, a small local pub group and brewery.
